Bird Cake Inspiration

Although their guests are going to enjoy Pie for dessert, Ryan and Angela are going to have a mini cake for a traditional cake-cutting. The couple is lucky enough to have a close family friend who has offered to create a cake for them to do so. Below are a few examples of bird-inspired wedding cakes that would work as a one-tier mini cake.


I love the twigs used here as well as the tree stump base. It is also interesting to see a cake without a traditional 'cake topper.' I kind of like the effect of the mini birds placed sporadically around the cake; however, as a one tier it would be so cute with a pair of tiny birds amidst twigs on the top, don't you think?

Better yet, put your bird cake-toppers in a nest! How adorable is this cake? Although simple in design, I love the effect of the rustic nest against the perfectly-iced white cake. For added colour, you could add a couple of bold flowers or choose coloured birds for in the nest.

Also, remember the adorable cake topper we found on Etsy:

This would work beautifully on the simplest of cakes. {I also love that you can personalize the banner to read your date, your names, "just married," or any other special message: what a keepsake}.

Love the top one. I will show this to Reb's mom when we start planning the cake. Thanks Court!

Glad you like them. You're {well, I guess she is} in luck: it's the simplest of cakes {in wedding terms}. It's the accents that make it.
